STANDARDS FOR CONCRETE POLES USED IN TRANSMISSION LINES BASICS


Codes, standards, or other documents referred to in this specification are to be considered as part of it. In the event of a conflict between this specification and the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), the NESC shall be followed. In the event of a conflict between this specification and all other referenced documents, this specification shall be followed.

If a conflict between several referenced documents occurs, the more stringent requirement shall be followed. If clarification is necessary, contact the owner.
